PencilArtHey, Everyone! My name is Lauren Tharp. I’m a freelance writer and the owner of LittleZotz Writing. Working as a both a bylined writer and a ghostwriter, I’ve been a part of the writing and marketing departments for a television mini-series, an online radio station, a designer headphone company, and countless small businesses around the world.
